Opening Reception for Gretchen Durst Jacobs

Nature/Nurture Opening Reception


The Dana L. Wiley Gallery is proud to present, Nature/Nurture an exhibition featuring the artwork by painter and printmaker, Gretchen Jacobs. This exhibit highlights perceptions of landscapes through the artist’s relationship with nature as the subject matter. The artist explores how interdependent we are with our environment and how our presence is impacted by the cyclical component of our natural world.

This artwork relies on the artist’s intuitive process producing effects that are impactful yet calming. Gretchen’s implementation of color and mark making are harmonious, complimenting and well balanced. Shapes emerge creating dimension within the work that has a meaningful interaction between positive and negative space. It induces a feeling one might experience when walking through the woods or interacting with the world outside our doors.

Gretchen Durst Jacobs exhibits her work in regional, national, and international exhibitions.  Recent exhibitions and activities include a solo show at The Dana Wiley Gallery November 2021, The Winds Café, December 2019, University of Cincinnati, Clermont January 2018, Dutoit Gallery July 2017.  Misc group shows including; Dayton/Kyoto Print Exchange, Working Green, Prints from Zea Mays Printmaking at Motherbrook Art and Community Center, Massachusetts. In April of 2017, Gretchen is one of the six artists who’s work was selected to be part of the ReImagining Works, a partnership with the Dayton Art Institute and the Dayton Metro Library.

In addition to exhibiting her own work, in February 2015, she became President of the Dayton Printmakers Cooperative in Dayton,
